Small Revolutionary War Era Pistol Primer Powder Horn-4″
Small Revolutionary War Era Pistol Primer Powder Horn-4″

This piece is pretty cool. The smallest primer horn I have ever seen. At just 4″ long it was probably just carried in a  pocket and not on a strap. It appears to have the original hand carved plug. Lots of use wear and very nice patina overall.

Rare Native American Indian Stirrup
Rare Native American Indian Stirrup

This is a very old and rare item that is in excellent condition. It was ingeniously made of from one piece of hand carved wood that was notched and then bent into position. The wood was then tied with what I believe is sinew. Then it was covered with animal hide, possibly buffalo, that was stretched and tied around the entire stirrup. This piece shows the high skill level and beautiful craftsmanship of it’s maker. It was purchased at a relic show in central Ohio in the late 60’s.

Native American Beadwork
Native American Beadwork

This is a very nice example of vintage Native American artwork. It was made in the late 1800’s or early 1900’s. It was purchased at a museum auction in the 1960’s. It is in very good condition with no missing beads. There is a bit of fraying at one end of the cloth. I am sure it took very many hours for the artist to make this.

Stone Elbow Pipe
Stone Elbow Pipe

This pipe was purchased by my father at a relic show in Indiana  in the 60’s. It has a hairline crack on both sides of the bowl but is otherwise in great shape. I don’t think this was Native American made but possibly a trade item.

Rare Early 17th Century European Fighting Axe
Rare Early 17th Century European Fighting Axe

This was found in a field along the Wabash River between a French trading post and the Tippecanoe battlefield. That doesn’t mean that it had anything to do with either. I’m just sayin’.  Anyway this is a very cool artifact. It is definitely very old. I now have new information from an expert. Apparently it is a battle-axe of a type originally from Eastern Europe (Hungarian or Polish) ca 1600.

Clay Trade Pipe
Clay Trade Pipe

This one was not a personal find. It does not have the patina similar to the ones I have found. So I believe it is a more recent replica but I  could be wrong. It would be a good one to have and use. Free shipping.
